Samsung fans have a lot to look forward to. According to a report in Bloomberg, the technology giant will be launching three new Galaxy S10 models along with the much talked about foldable phone early next year.

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus will reportedly feature curved OLED screens and will sport in-display fingerprint scanners. The Android smartphones will come with a triple rear camera setup and a front facing snapper that will be “visible and tucked under the screen.” As of now, there is little clarity on what it means, but reports suggest that the technology giant is working on placing the cameras beneath the display, in order to deliver an all-screen experience to users.

The report also says that Samsung has made certain prototypes of its S10 smartphone without headphone jacks. However, we will have to wait for more details before we can say that the company has decided to eliminate them.

The third S10 model that Samsung has been working on is supposedly an affordable variant of the phone. It is said to come without a curved screen and will not sport an in-display fingerprint sensor. An earlier report has suggested that this model would have a fingerprint scanner on its side edge.

It is also being said that the company is planning to bring a 5G version of Galaxy S10 in the US and is in talks with Verizon Wireless for the same. A leaked code has revealed that Samsung has been working on a 5G Galaxy S10 model and its codename is ‘Beyond’.

Coming to Samsung’s foldable smartphone, according to The Wall Street Journal, it has been codenamed ‘Winner’. The smartphone would not sport an in-display fingerprint sensor, considering it will be difficult to incorporate it because of technical issues. The report in The Wall Street Journal also said that the smartphone will be around 7-inches diagonal when unfolded.

It is being said that Samsung is deciding whether the smartphone should fold vertically or horizontally, but we don’t think it is credible considering that the technology giant has suggested that it may showcase the device at its developer conference that is scheduled for next month.
